I Heart Valentine's Day

I love Valentine's Day...not necessarily for the lovey dovey-ness (I have been there single ladies!)...but I really love it because it is pretty. Eye candy for every girly girl...those pinks and reds are to drool over. I have to admit, the same day I took down Christmas, Valentine's went up! I know...over a month early...I'm killing you right? Well, I went a little crazy last year with the V-Day decor. Target had some absolutely delicious cupcake decor that I went wild over! In order to rationalize the craziness I put up the decorations ASAP so that I can enjoy it longer. And boy does it make me squeal!
I decided to refrain from posting my decorations so that we can all breathe through the New Year but not knowing what to post about, I thought I would share some cute finds I would like to make eventually. But don't worry...those decorations will be coming!

I even remembered loving V-day in elementary school...something about having decorated little bags on your desk and hoping the cute boy you sit next to gave you something sweet...It is a beautiful thing. And back in high school, us single late bloomer girlfriends would have our own V-day parties with a gift exchange and festive red sprinkled treats. There is a sweet nostalgia about it and reminds me why I love being a girl so much! :)
Oh Valentine's Day...I love you! xoxo

  2. Valentine's Day is a big fav for me too. It's also a big cupcake day too. LOL!. Lots of cupcake stuff in the stores. Of course, I love what I get from my significant other. Quality time with him.

  3. I absolutely know what you mean! My daughter and I went into TJ Maxx the week after Christmas, and they had an abundance of Valentine's Day pottery and deco on display and I went crazy...

    my daughter thought I was nuts!

  4. LOL! I heart Valentine's Day, too - and apparently so does my Little Princess...she's nagging me to get some Valentine's Day decorations, so I guess I'll make her happy (which, of course, will make me happy...heh, heh!)

  12. What a cute post! I struggle with how to accessorize the house for Valentine's Day, but I do love the school aspect of it! I love decorating little boxes and treat bags for my kids! Can't wait to see what everyone does for it!

  13. oh my gosh!...I actually had what I THINK might be a genius idea for you...maybe you'll think so, maybe you won't...

    you know that FABULOUS white tree you just bought?? the one you really wish you could go ahead and use now?? why not break convention and use it for valentine's day?? cover it in pink and red hearts, flowers, vintage love, and anything else you can think of...it wouldn't look the least bit christmasy, and you would be the talk of the town!

  26. Finally! Someone who loves Valentine's Day! It seems that the people that don't like it, are always pleased to say just how much they don't like it, and how it's a Hallmark holiday. Whatevs.

    Loving your SAUCY Blog!

  30. Ya know, I have never really been one for Valentines Day but after reading this post and realizing how beautiful some of the decorations are, I might just get into it a little bit. I love pale pinks with hints of passionate red. Awwww, so pretty.

    Congrats again on your saucy week!

  31. It is pretty isn't it? Wow, some of those decorations are great, but I wish I could make them instead of rely on someone to do it for me and add a heavy price tag.

  32. I am a big Valentines girl too. I think it is the hearts that grab me. Besides pink has always been my favoite. I do the same thing and put Valentines up as soon as Christmas goes down. This year I made a cute little heart garland that you can see on my blog.

  34. Oh NOW look what you've done! You got me in the Valentine's Day mood which means up go the decorations, out goes Michelle shopping for Valentine's Day things...and in goes all that good baking shaped like hearts into my tummy! I blame you for all this. ;) Have a great day, Ashley! By the way, love that pink wreath that looks like it has little light pink bulb ornaments on it...is that what that is?
